I turned 9 months old on Friday! Can you believe it? We celebrated by doing a cute Christmas baby photo shoot. Mom will post the link. We also visited Pip the Mouse at the Liberty Bell museum and took a trip to the Library.
I'm still getting over a bad cold from last week. I do feel better, but I've taken some good naps this weekend to help me recover. The big news for me is that I can now push the infamous beat-boxing tonka truck across the floor, walking behind it!! I'll be walking unassisted in no time.
Today, I had Mom and Dad all to myself for most of the afternoon. Preston was on an adventure with Grandpa to ride the "Santa train" an event that I'm looking forward to participating in next year. I helped Mom make a pecan pie, and last night we all pitched in to make cut-out cookies. We bake a lot as a family in the spirit of the holidays.
Here's the link to the full Christmas Photo Shoot
And for Pip the Mouse
I guess I'm pretty far behind, because we didn't even post about getting our Christmas Tree! It's Luke's first one, so it's sort of important (although everything this year is first for Luke). We went with Grandma and Grandpa to chop down our trees, and we picked a beauty (the very first one we found). We think Daddy picked up some poison ivy while out in the wilderness, so he's been grouchy on a steroid all week. We caught it early enough this time that he didn't get a horrible disfiguring rash, so I guess we can't complain about his attitude too much.
Here are some pictures of our tree!
